McDonald’s launches first seasonal McFlurry in 7 years
McDonald’s fans are well acquainted with Oreo and M&M’s McFlurries, but this month, the fast food giant is spicing things up with a national release of its first new seasonal McFlurry flavor in seven years. Back in 2012, the chain launched a Holiday Mint McFlurry, which seemed pretty on-brand considering the popularity of the Shamrock Shake. But the 2019 version ditches that minty fresh flavor for cinnamon — and it’s loaded with chunks of a holiday-favorite cookie.
Popeyes debuts $120,003.99 chicken sandwich at Art Basel
If there’s only one thing you have to know about this year’s Art Basel Miami Beach, it’s that an artistand sold it for $120,000 … multiple times.
The artwork, called Comedian by Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan, hasthis past week, culminating in huge crowds at the gallery, around the world, a performance artist who , and a vandal who “Epstein didn’t kill himself” on the wall — a foregone, if uncomfortable, conclusion, in a time in which memes have transcended the boundaries of the internet and are not only bleeding into the physical world, but shaping the contours of it, too.

There may be a lot of things you don’t know about Chick-fil-A, but if there’s one thing you definitely know about the fast food chain, it’s that it has a massive following. Chick-fil-A is quickly growing and has become the third-most profitable chain restaurant in America. With millions of devoted fans and diners, we had to ask: What is Chick-fil-A’s most popular menu item? 10 Ways Fast Food Chains Are Playing With Your Head The most-orderedChick-fil-A’s most-ordered menu item is its beloved side.
In this age of endless replication and memes and, it was only a matter of time before a fast-food corporation got involved in the most talked-about viral stunt of the week: Popeyes, a chain with its own experience of transforming into . Over the weekend at Art Basel in Miami, Popeyes taped one of its chicken sandwiches on a canvas and called it The Sandwich, billed as a “mixed media work of art.” The piece, which has been seen by “thousands of visitors” at San Paul Gallery Urban Art, per Popeyes, is on sale for $120,003.99 — the cost of Comedian, plus $3.99 for the sandwich. The company plans to donate any profits to its charity arm the Popeyes Foundation.

Taco Bell is testing new Crispy Tortilla Chicken strips
In 2018, Taco Bell debuted $1 Nacho Fries seasoned with Mexican spices and served with a side of liquid cheese. This twist on a fast food staple was an instant hit, surpassing the Doritos Locos Taco for most successful product launch in company history. Now, the chain is taking a crack at another iconic fast food dish: fried chicken. The Best Fried Chicken in Every State Taco Bell is currently testing Crispy Tortilla Chicken strips, which come on their own in orders of two or three, or as part of a taco with lettuce, tomato, shredded cheese and sour cream.

In that sense, the existence of Comedian and The Sandwich make perfect sense as objects of consumption.
